The AOC of Costières de Nîmes has been reassigned from Languedoc to the Rhône Valley, but its stature as a giant among regions that score high on the price-to-quality ratio is constant. With a history of winemaking that spans centuries, Costières de Nîmes produces complex wines that beautifully display a seamless interplay between grape and terroir.

Château L'Ermite d'Auzan is an estate with a history dating back to the 11th century. It is currently owned by the Castillon family, who have been tirelessly working their 80 hectares of vineyards with passion and reverence for their terroir for four generations. Their south-facing vineyards have soil rich in sandstone and benefit from their proximity to the Mediterranean, which bestows cooling breezes on the vines so that they can bear fruit that perfectly balances ripeness and acidity. In order to preserve the purity of fruit and terroir-driven characters in their finished wines, the family has converted to organic farming. They became certified organic in 2020 and are currently employing biodynamic practices as well.
The 2022 Château L'Ermite d'Auzan Rosé is elegant and refreshing, with aromas of ripe red berries and flavors of strawberries, raspberries, Honeydew melon, citrus fruits, and wet stone wrapped around a core of mouthwatering acidity. Check out the press!

90 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A 50-50 blend of cinsault and grenache, the 2022 Costières de Nîmes Rosé d'Auzan is an attractive pale flamingo-pink hue in the glass. The dried spices and stone fruit of the cinsault make themselves known on the nose, while the wine is medium-bodied in the mouth, finishing silky and long, with echoes of citrus." (5/18/23)
